HD Property Video Available. Lethendy House is an impressive former manse set within walled garden grounds with extensive views across adjacent fields and woodland. The Victorian property retains many original features and has been thoughtfully upgraded to provide flexible, contemporary accommodation.
The landscaped gardens to front and rear have been recently replanted and provide an elegant backdrop to the house. The property is accompanied by traditional stone outbuildings, and has the additional benefit of a spacious timber-clad studio in the garden.
Built from pink sandstone under a slate roof, Lethendy House provides well proportioned family accommodation over three floors. Period features include ceiling cornicing, detailed architraves, panelled doors, a wrought iron staircase, fireplaces and original working shutters. The drawing room and sitting room (with woodburning stove) sit to the front of the property and each has a large window and wooden floors. Leading directly from the sitting room is a study which overlooks the garden. The double-aspect dining-kitchen is bright and open, with an adjacent utility room, a range cooker and stone tiled floor.
The four double bedrooms lie over the first and second floors. There are three bedrooms, a large bathroom and a shower room on the first floor, and a spacious bedroom and bathroom, with a roll-top bath, on the second floor. Both enjoy outstanding views over the garden and surrounding countryside.
Lethendy House sits within a light, bright walled garden with a large lawn and planted borders at the rear, and a gravelled courtyard with timber-edged beds and climbing roses to the front. The garden has been renovated and replanted by the present owners, and has a large greenhouse and composting area. In the vegetable garden, productive fruit trees include apple, plum, gooseberry and blackcurrant.
